    Could be the answer to the POI shift with the wooden stocks Rob?:confused:
    I'm gonna try mine out when i get fit and strong enough to shoot the damn thing again, try it with all the stock bolts in and with the front end ones left out etc...:)

    Look better at the picture: She's not from Estonia. She's got her origin embroidered on her cap. It says "Hell".

    And she must be from over there because who else would choose to put a springer in a vibration amplifying thing like an aluminum stock. Unless MEC made up some recoil or vibration dampening mounting system. Which at least is not their expertise coming from 10meters ISSF rifle shooting.

    Lots of air/smallbore shooters use metal stocks - see http://www.edinkillie.co.uk/ and select Rifle Stocks.

    Kind of an expensive test to buy something 'almost' and file it to shape for a HW97 hahaha

    Well, i've certainly been pulling my hair out. Any more problems and I'll be joining Scott and your club! I now know why you've gone for the convertible look :D Think Scott just lost his coping with the great turnip juice price crash of last autumn and the Blue Stratos doping scandal that followed...

    Might have found a/the problem. Looks like the front bolt underneath the trigger guard had come loose again. :eek:o Nick said it was out by about 3 turns. When I gave it to Mr Ayers I'd done it up to train engineer torque, and he said it hadn't shifted despite a long term soak test. But as time went on i started seeing shifts and then it went wammo at East Devon, sticking the first shot into the chain... 2 MOA seemed to do the trick after about 10 targets of guessing... then on last lane it went high. Clucking bell.

    So for a start I need to keep the bolts in place. I tried them all in the other day and it grouped better, but within 50 or so shots I could put a 1/4 turn on them all.

    Once that's cured, i can see if the wood can take it. Trouble is the last thing you want to do is pull the thing out of a stock to check they're all tight... cos you know it won't be where you left it.

    Tool has some sticky Crème brûlée he's going to lend me. With Nick's loctite and that I'm hoping she'll stay in one place for the worlds. If the bolts do and she moves, then it's try laminate time. If that don't work, then perhaps this could.

    Think Mec stocks are about a kilo + 1/2 to buy.
